Following a recent announcement we have feature parity between Teams and SFB - how is the interop roadmap / functionality going between Teams and Skype for Business On-Prem?

Have I missed some documentation?

No. Federation only works with s4b online. You can have hybrid setup and use it but only with users homed online.

@Christopher Webb not so, fully federation is possible with any SfB that is on-premises, but its currently in rollout.

 

@Craig Shelton Teams will talk with other tenants in the same way as SfBOnline, so as long as that works then it'll also work into Teams. In teams for federation to work fully a user needs to be set into the right 'mode' so their messages and calls find the right client.

thats Good to know. Last post I’ve seen was the whole homed method. Good to know it’s going to support what the previous S4b federation supported.

@Steven Collierthe full Federation that is in rollout, is there (blog) documentation?

What are you suggesting with "user needs to be set into the right 'mode'" ?

There's not a lot documented at the moment.

 

Modes is a feature of SfB Online and Teams, to determine which client would receive an incoming IM or call, unless you are set to Teams only SfB will take precedence. See

@Steven Collier, Is there an update on the On-Prem Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams federation capabilities since your last update?
I've spoken to the product team and they are looking into this as some far future possibility, but it not on the roadmap and probably won't be for some time if ever they decided to create some hybrid voice deployment model.

??? Federation between On-prem SfB and Teams is supported today...

I have been advised that I need to configure our On-Prem SfB with Hybrid SfB (online) and then configure Teams Federation with the SfB (online). I will then be looking at Teams "Direct Connect" (on Ribbon Gateways) to add dial tone to Teams. Anyone had this experience?
